Well-advanced 5 inch gauge LNER J39 - stock code 6173

A well-advanced LNER J39 to Martin Evans' "Stratford" design. Work to date comprises a largely complete chassis, painted tender and well-made silver soldered copper boiler complete with original club hydraulic test certificate. There is a tin of parts and castings with it including outer dome casting, fabricated fountain, eccentric straps and rods, expansion links, blast pipe and blower ring, brake shoes and a bag of Doug Hewson dummy washout plugs.

An unusual engine, we've only ever had one complete one in before (Percy Woods' IMLEC winner, an absolute delight to drive). This one could be completed at modest cost - basically some platework and fittings.
